SS GIRLS (1977) ***

Bruno (Night of the Zombies) Mattei was behind the camera for this better than you’d expect Naziploitation flick that plays like a random ass hybrid of The Dirty Dozen and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. 


Crazed Nazi officer Hans Schellenberg (Gabriele Carrara) gets handpicked by Der Fuehrer for a top secret operation to root out soldiers who may not be 100% loyal to The Third Reich.  The plan is to round up the ten best hookers in Germany and set them up in a secluded brothel where they can fuck the top Nazi brass.  Hopefully when they are all liquored up and spent from a night of passion, the soldiers will spew out some anti-Fuehrer sentiment that will land them in hot water. 


But since Hans is a perverted perfectionist, he hires two scientists (one is a hot chick who looks like Martine Beswick with a big scar on her face) to teach the girls to be even more skanky by having them fuck all kinds of nasty people like dirty dykes, deformed dudes and even a damned dog!  (Of course it HAD to be a German Shepherd, right?)  The thinking behind that is if they don’t say no to a dog, they won’t have any problems catering to the desires of debased one-eyed Nazis who like their sex a little kinky. 


Naziploitation is a crude and skuzzy subgenre that isn’t for all tastes.  Having said that, if you are in the mood for crude and skuzzy, then SS Girls will definitely be your cup of tea.  The sheer amount of female flesh that was paraded around makes the flick recommendation enough, but the montage Mattei cooked up in which the hos exercised, fucked dogs AND took a ballerina class in order to become a better slut was priceless.


Honestly though, if I could single out just one reason why you should see SS Girls it’s for Gabriele Carrara.  This dude is a lunatic.  His whacked out performance made Crispin Glover look like Mister Rogers.


SS Girls gets off to a great start but things quickly run out of steam once Carrara hari-karis himself.  As entertaining as the rest of the movie was, without the amazing presence of Carrara (who was also in Mattei’s Women’s Camp 119 the same year), it was severely lacking in the crazy department. 


AKA:  Private House of the SS.
